3rd Offense DUI within a 10-year period:

Any person convicted of a third DUI within a 10-year period will face harsh penalties.  There is a mandatory minimum sentence required by law of 120-days in county jail.  The fines will be in the area of $2,000, and up to 5-years of probation may be imposed.  Fresno typically sentences offenders to a 3-year probation, 120-days in County Jail, fines in the area of $2,000.   A 30-month DUI program is required by the DMV to reinstate your license.  You will have to file an SR-22 proof of financial responsibility (Insurance) with the DMV for 3-years following a conviction.

Hiring an experienced defense attorney who keeps current with DUI laws can help you avoid jail time.  There are options, depending on the circumstance.  Fresno County has allowed some offenders to serve their custody time in rehabilitation programs, house arrest with GPS monitors, and/or with a "SCRAM" monitor which may or may not have GPS activated.

SCRAM:  Scram monitors are a continuous alcohol monitor that attached to a clients leg, like a GPS, but the SCRAM monitor detects alcohol in a clients sweat, and reports the presence of alcohol to the monitoring company, and subsequently to the court.  The web address below will provide you with more information on the SCRAM monitor.
